Kung Fu Maintenance shows you one of the most common experiences and causes of an electrical plug outlet not working in a bathroom.
Alright I have got a bathroom plug outlet here. Got my deal plugged in here and go to turn it on. Nothing happens. This outlet you can see is not a GFCI.
The thing is a lot of times these bathrooms are linked together on a GFI. On my particular setup the GFCI is over here in the hall restroom. Right here, and its go the little reset button right here.
A lot of times what causes this is a hairdryer this is a fifteen amp circuit. A lot of hair dryers are 18 amps so this often trips the breaker. As you can see. We come back over here and the lights on so this is just a simple matter of resetting the GFI.
This particular setup the outlet that is outside on the front patio is also linked to this same GFI that this one was linked to. So it is a nice easy fix of just resetting the GFCI button.
